I said yesterday that SAGE doesn't make their cards like they used to, and while that's a shame, I'll always have favorites like the 2008 product. This is a design that's easy for me to like thanks to the fun college action photos, big swatch of blue (on the base versions), and notable stats up front. I'm also fine with the stickers they used in this case since the autograph is easy to see on them.
My only other Henne from this product is the Gold version (#d /250) so I'm hoping to find the others eventually in order to show off a very nice rainbow.
Despite today's haul being just two cards instead of three because of my mistake, I still have a very special Henne collection milestone to celebrate: 100 hits! He's just the second player in my entire Michigan sports collection to reach that mark (of course Rich Hill was first). In case you're interested, those break down into:
- 36 relics (including multiples)
- 32 autographs (just signatures)
- 12 autographed relics
- 5 patches (including manupatches)
- 14 autographed patches/manupatches
- 2 plates/1-of-1s
Stay tuned for more trade package goodness soon.
